    I HAVEĀ  SONY KDF55A20-IT IS 3 YEARS OLD. AFTER TURNING IT ON, THE PICTURE AND SOUND GO OFF ON ITS OWN-THE GREEN LIGHT STAYS ON, SO THE TV IS NOT OFF-AFTER 20-40 SECONDS IT COMES BACK ON. THE TV WAS FINE FOR THE FIRST 2 YEARS, NOW THIS HAPPENS DAILY AND UNPREDICTABLY, BUT CONTINUOUSLY.

    I have one of these 55's and the same problem started a few days ago. The lamp light does not come on indicating its the bulb going out. I'll probably switch out the cable box to see if thats the problem.

It is the lamp cover. There is a switch behind it and the post on the cover will slip off the switch. If this switch is not depressed, the tv will go off. No lamp light flashing or anything

Well the tv finally faded to black ( no more fading back and forth) and the red indicator lamp is now blinking on my Sony Grand Wega 60 inch.This lamp is not even a year old. The tv is about a year and a half. Just got off the phone with Sony and they told me that my only option was to call an authorized service provider because they could not do anything unless they knew whether it was the lamp of tv that was defective. Well I bought the last lamp online from Sony ( at about $200) but he stated that there was only a 90 day warranty on that and that even if it were the tv and I did get an official diagnosis, that Sony would not do anything bc it was out of warrany. Thanks Sony!!!
